Dear Friends,


For over 40 years, the Greater Wyoming Valley Audubon Society (GWVAS) has supported wildlife conservation and actions to protect clean air, water and land for humankind. This year has presented challenges to do the things we love to do and find important. Yet, your Board of Directors has wisely continued to embrace the Chapter’s mission. Among other initiatives this year, the Board has organized responsible field trips which have had good and well-managed attendance and provided educational Zoom meetings on a variety of nature related topics. It has joined with other organizations to support legislation protecting birds worldwide and has continued its efforts for environmental education by offering scholarships to children attending online nature camps this summer.

While we all face uncertainty, the Board of Directors has an even higher level of determination to meet the Chapter’s goals. Chapter committees are already

  1. planning spring projects to be held in responsible ways

  2. making connections to our local community and government partners to create habitat through encouraging installations of nest boxes and pollinator gardens

  3. seeking new ways to reach out to a diverse group of new birders to educate and encourage them

  4. working to create interesting field trips to new places and to some old favorites

  5. planning educational displays for when we all may gather together safely.

Why this increased determination? Two thirds of the birds in this country face extinction through the effects of climate change. That number does not include reductions through habitat and corridor loss. As birds are indicators of the health of the human environment, we must resolve to support conservation efforts now more than ever.

Knowing that the Board’s determination to continue your Chapter’s mission to support environmental education and conservation has not diminished but, indeed, is stronger than ever, will you consider supporting these efforts? Your donation, no matter the size, will help provide educational and habitat materials within this Chapter’s boundaries which will truly help to make a global impact.

Please accept my personal thanks for giving serious consideration to this appeal. I wish for you and those dear to you peace and safety and look forward to the time when we can meet together.


Sincerely,

Bonnie Yuscavage,

GWVAS President
